FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is your style of photography?

Do you have a travel fee?
There is no travel fee for sessions 25 miles from Hartford, Wisconsin. If you are in love with a location outside of this range, please contact me for a custom travel quote.
When and where do sessions occur?
Outdoor sessions occur during “golden hour.” This is an hour after sunrise or before sunset. It provides the best and most flattering light for your portraits!
There are many beautiful options for outdoor portraits. You are welcome to select the perfect place for you. Richfield Historical Society, Holy Hill and Pike Lake Unit-Kettle Moraine State Forest are a few of my favorites!
Indoor sessions take place at your home, and do not need to be at “golden hour.”
What should I wear?
Clothing is a great way to help show your personality and sense of style. You will look best in comfortable clothes without logos. Neutrals are timeless, and wearing clothing with textures and layers adds dimension without being distracting. Family members look best wearing a complementary colored tops. Children’s outfits are a great way to bring in a pop of color. Whenever possible avoid vivid neon colors and multiple types of patterns across family members (i.e. plaid, circles and stripes on different members of the family). Remember accidents happen, so planning a second outfit might be a good idea!
What happens if it rains or there is a blizzard the day of our outdoor session?
Sessions can absolutely be rescheduled due to inclement weather.
What happens if one of my family members is sick the day of our session?
As a photographer, I often work with newborns, babies and children. To keep these little loves safe please reschedule if anyone coming to the session is experiencing a fever over 99 degrees, vomiting or diarrhea. There is no fee if you cancel ahead of the scheduled session time due to illness. However, if you come to your session and we are forced to reschedule due to illness there is a $50 rescheduling fee.

Final edited images will be available to you within sixty days of your session date, and twelve weeks of your wedding date.
